Do not flag this package out-of-date.

It updates automatically on each install.

Is that the -git version? Either way it's broken, as through the pkgver() function is how all the VCS packages (Git, SVN, etc.) update the pkgver, as well as these nightlies.

.SRCINFO is synced with mksrcinfo (community/pkgbuild-introspection) and I really can't see why should pacaur start caring about it during build, especially as much as to abort it.

The error seems to come from pacaur, sry. After buikding the package archive, it says:

:: chromium-snapshot-bin package(s) failed to install. Check .SRCINFO for mismatching data with PKGBUILD.

pkgver is 58.xx.. in .SRCINFO and 59.xx.. in PKGBUILD. The actual package archive has the version from PKGBUILD. Installing it with pacman -U works. The header of .SRCINFO is:

Pacman doesn't care about the .SRCINFO, which in fact is in sync until you update with the pkgver().

What's the error?

noxpo commented on 2017-03-07 18:58

pacman throws an error because .SRCINFO und PKGBUILD are not in sync. Probably due to two different package versions (58 vs 59).

Something was done about the lib lookup a while back so that even replacing the bundled FFmpeg libs with Chrome's own didn't bring back H.264 (related?:

So if you want a bleeding edge H.264 "Chromium", that's

Does anyone know is there a way to enable H.264 video codec in chromium snapshot? page says that this browser doesn't supports MSE & H.264 codecs so I can't view live streams at YouTube using chromium snapshot.

You should remove the line 13 from the chromium-snapshot-bin script.

Thanks for the package. Keep on

Dropped i686, as it hasn't been updated since May 18th (51.0.2684.0, r382086).

You should be on extra/chromium instead (52.0.2743.85).

It's a manually updateable latest nightly of Chromium, the base of Chrome.

Anyone else get a page crash on video fullscreen? Usually happens a few times and then begins working correctly.
